report on behalf of MITSuME and OISTER collaboration:

We observed the field of GRB 151022A (D'Avanzo et al., GCNC 18436)
with the optical three color (g', Rc and Ic) CCD camera attached
to the MITSuME 50cm telescope of Okayama Astrophysical Observatory.

The observation started on 2015-10-22 14:08:12 UT (~100 sec after the burst).
We did not find any new point source within the enhanced XRT circle
(Beardmore et al., GCNC 18444) in all the three bands.

Three sigma upper limits of the OT are listed below.
We used SDSS-DR8 catalog for flux calibration.
